Paleo Chocolate Truffles (Schweddy Balls)

  • Author: Raj -
  • Yield: 30 truffles 1x


  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 4 Tbsp cacao (if you use cocoa use less maple syrup)
  • 4 Tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 6 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • 5 bacon slices (cooked and finely diced) (coats 810 balls)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts (finely chopped) (coats 1012 balls)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (use blender to break down smaller) (coats 57 balls)


  1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a food processor, then chill in refrigerator overnight or in your freezer until it has set (the mixture will be mousse-like).
  2. Once thickened you will be able to form these into soft balls in your hand (about 1 Tbsp or an inch radius in size).
  3. Spread a thin layer of bacon bits on a clean counter or cutting board, and roll each ball to coat thoroughly.
  4. Once bacon is used up, do the same with walnut crumbs, and then coconut shreds.
  5. Place each coated truffle in small paper bonbon cups. Store in refrigerator or freezer.
  6. Share with loved ones (or don’t!)


I also tried adding some culinary lavender to the coconut covering, but it wasn’t my taste.
